Default Sideband Addressing

What exactly is it? I heard that is was supposed to improve graphics performace somehow. Currently sideband addressing is disabled on my comp but if it increases performance, why would nVidia have it disabled as the default setting? Is there any danger of turning it on? Would I get any performace gain out of it?

In some cases when a certain motherboard chipset is used, it must be forced manually (equivalent to the AGP drive strength bug prevalent in early VIA chipsets).

SBA doesn't provide too much of a nominal performance gain, as for the most part, it will compromise stability, though it should always be enabled (automatically) if the card is running in AGP 8x mode.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
